Pimlico Elementary / Middle School is a neighborhood charter school operated by the Baltimore Curriculum Project. Like all charter schools in Maryland, our school is tuition-free and non-sectarian. As a neighborhood conversion charter, our priority is to first serve students living in our neighborhood enrollment zone. If seats are still available, we will go to a lottery for those living outside the school zone.

Who Can Enroll?

Elementary and middle school students from the surrounding neighborhoods. Any kindergarten through 8th grade child living or moving into the neighborhood may enroll at any time, without participating in a lottery. 

A few neighborhood elementary schools are “feeder” schools for nearby schools with middle grades. This means that 5th-grade students at the neighborhood elementary school are automatically enrolled in a nearby school for 6th grade. Students zoned for Arlington Elementary, or Park Heights Academy are zoned for Pimlico Middle school. 

If you live in this zone, call or email the school to enroll. 

We also serve non-zoned elementary and middle school students throughout Baltimore City.

If there are no vacancies at the time, students can be added to a waitlist or upcoming lottery. For more information on the lottery process, please refer to Baltimore City Public Schools guidelines.
